Mariah Carey likes to be at one with the snowfall over the Christmas period - dressed only in a skimpy Santa bikini.
The WE BELONG TOGETHER singer spends the holidays lounging in a hot tub, before rolling around in the freezing cold snow.
Carey admits she loves her scantily-clad snow frolics in Aspen, Colorado, where she has spent the previous nine Christmases, and insists the festive antics are a part of an age-old state custom.
She says, "I like to get out of the hot tub and roll in the snow.
"It's a tradition for us to have Santa Claus-looking bikinis, jump in the hot tub, and roll in the fresh snow.
"Somebody told me that it was a tradition in Aspen, but maybe they were lying to me."
